Scheduled Maintenance on July 26

Postby Keith Robinson » 26 Jul 2008, 01:07

Since these forums are used by people from all over the planet, this maintenance announcement is probably a good idea! The server people at Modwest are doing some urgent hardware maintenance on Saturday night and the website (including forums) will be down for up to five hours. As for the exact time...

Work is stated to begin at Midnight here in US Eastern Time, so y'all in England can expect it to start at 5am -- although time clocks seem to indicate 4am, which confuses me; they say that daylights savings is in effect in the US but not in the UK -- is that true? As far as I know, I'm always 5 hours behind the UK except for one week in a year.

Anyway, I'm sure you can all work it out. :D

If you're curious about what's happening and when the forums might be back online, go to http://status.modwest.com for an up-to-the-minute report.

That will make the start of the maintenance, at approximately midday, or 1:00PM, in Perth Australia. We're 7 or 8 hours in front of the UK.

Seems so, Pippa-Stef. Took about four hours. I was asleep at the time so it didn't affect me one bit. :lol:

Keith was'nt doing the maintenance himself PS. It was the people who own the software who were working on it. I missed it as well due to sleep, they chose a fairly good time to work IMO.
